France: 76 mosques face closure, 66 migrants deported

 

– The French government has launched a “massive and unprecedented” wave of actions to combat what it calls religious “extremism”, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said, adding that 76 mosques are suspected of “separatism”.

Darmanin tweeted his interview with RTL radio on Thursday, writing: “In the coming days, checks will be carried out on these places of worship. If ever these doubts are confirmed, I will ask for their closure.” He also said 66 undocumented migrants suspected of “radicalisation” had been deported. President Emmanuel Macron’s government has responded to several deadly attacks in recent weeks with a promise to crack down on what Darmanin has said is “the enemy within”.
